Fully Embroidered Shipibo 'Earth' Falda

1 item left

Deep in the Peruvian Amazon, a Shipibo Artisan skillfully embroidered this intricate tapestry. These rare and unique ancestral designs are passed down from ancient times. 

For most Shipibo communities selling of this Ancestral art is often the main source of income, and their work has very limited exposure, mostly limited to few passing seasonal tourists. Our project provides a free service for the artisans enabling them to market their craft worldwide.

These long, wide tapestries offer an inspired expression of the Peruvian Amazon and with beautifully complex colour combinations, faldas make the perfect wall-hanging and can serve as elegant runners for your dining table or bed. When worn, they make for a wonderfully colourful scarf or wrap around
